This document describes general and flexible TLVs for representing cryptographic Integrity Check Values (ICVs) (i.e., digital signatures or Message Authentication Codes (MACs)) as well as timestamps, using the generalized Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) packet/message format defined in RFC 5444. It defines two Packet TLVs, two Message TLVs, and two Address(More)
The link quality mechanism of the Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) Neighborhood Discovery Protocol (NHDP) enables "ignoring" some 1-hop neighbors if the measured link quality from that 1-hop neighbor is below an acceptable threshold while still retaining the corresponding link information as acquired from the HELLO message exchange. This allows immediate(More)
The Optimized Link State Routing Protocol version 2 (OLSRv2) includes the ability to assign metrics to links and to use those metrics to allow routing by other than minimum hop count routes. This document provides a historic record of the rationale for, and design considerations behind, how link metrics were included in OLSRv2. Status of This Memo This(More)
A Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) is a network that allows servers and client to communicate in the absence of a fixed infrastructure. MANET is fast growing area of research as its finds use in a various applications. In MANETs, dynamic topologies and the failure of mobile nodes due to exhaustion of their battery power can considerably decrease data(More)
Most of previous research in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs) concentrated on the development and enhancement of neighbor discovery protocols and routing protocols, which could efficiently discover reliable route between two communication mobile nodes. Data caching addressed two basic issues: cache resolution and cache management. In this paper, we give a(More)
Greedy perimeter stateless routing (GPSR), a scalable routing protocol for wireless sensor networks (WSNs) that use the randomized positioning of routers in different configurations and algorithms are used to make packet delivery decisions through nodes. As the number of destinations increases this protocol scales better in per-router state than(More)
This specification updates the Optimized Link State Routing Protocol version 2 (OLSRv2) with an optimization to improve the selection of routing multipoint relays. The optimization retains full interoperability between implementations of OLSRv2 with and without this optimization. Information about the current status of this document, any errata, and how to(More)
This specification describes version 2 of the Optimized Link State Routing Protocol (OLSRv2) for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs). Information about the current status of this document, any errata, and how to provide feedback on it may be obtained at in effect on the date of publication of this document. Please review these documents carefully, as they(More)
